We have just received word from a very reliable source regarding the future of A Bug’s Life. Our source informs us that Pixar is intending to proceed with a sequel to A Bug’s Life, with a projected release date of Winter 2013.
The film is currently in early pre-production with Darla K. Anderson attached to direct. Darla is currently producing Toy Story 3, due for release next year which would give her the typical 3 years to make a sequel at Pixar. It seems she wouldn’t be the first producer to direct at Pixar either, after Brad Lewis was announced as director of Cars 2 last year. Some of you may recall that Darla has been with Pixar since Toy Story, also serving as producer on A Bug’s Life.
Although the storyline is still in the works, our source tells us it has to do with Ant Island being washed away in a severe flood, and they have to migrate and rebuild in a new location.
An official announcement from Disney•Pixar is expected to be made with the release of A Bug’s Life on Blu-Ray on May 19.
What do you think about this news? Do sequels bode well for Pixar’s future? How does another producer directing sit in your books? Leave a comment below and let us know.
Note: If you didn’t notice, this was just an April Fool’s joke!
